• Interactive journey from the default Emacs into something more useful/usable

Yes, there are already available Pre-packaged Emacs

  • Emacs ┬áPrelude (
  • Emacs Live (
  • starter-kit

So, what is wrong with them

  • Probably nothing, it is just non-good way to start learning Emacs, imo
  • How do you know that you don't like/like something until you try
  • It is much better try to configure stuff yourself, and maybe even fail, but this is the way you learn
  • And they still can be used as a reference point to search for solutions

C-h is your friend :)

Let start the Journey :)
